Police said Thursday that more body parts have been found in Kanagawa Prefecture’s Hiratsuka City.
Both legs of an unidentified male and other body parts were found in two separate places within city limits on Wednesday, and are believed to belong to the same body whose severed head was discovered in a bag on Sunday, TBS reported.
Coroners performed an autopsy on the chest and torso, confirming the man died one to two months ago, TBS quoted police as saying.
The autopsy did not reveal a cause of death. Police say DNA tests are being conducted.
The body parts were all wrapped in blue plastic and concealed within paper bags. The rib cage, thighs, and the legs from the knee down were found in separate bags, and investigators discovered a bloody newspaper nearby.
Police also said that a man separately found pieces of what appear to be human flesh and a kitchen knife stuck into the ground in a city park, TBS reported.© Japan Today
